Anthony Joshua said Andy Ruiz’s burgeoning weight not important

anthony Joshua body change

Anthony Joshua, said  his body again looking as if it could have been sculpted by Phidias, weighed in at his lightest since 2014 for Saturday night’s WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight title rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr. But while a slimline Joshua tipped the scales at 16st 13lb, 10lbs less than he was for the pair’s first meeting in June, Ruiz came in at a gargantuan 20st 3lb – 15lb more than six months ago when he shocked the world at Madison Square Garden.

This is the lightest Anthony Joshua has ever been for a world title fight.

In fact, 237lbs is the lightest he’s scaled since his ninth professional fight against Denis Bakhtov back in 2014.

The last time Joshua dropped anywhere close to this weight was for the unification win over Joseph Parker.
